On Saturday May 4th at Hermann Sons Hall in Petaluma, the Who's Who Revue Lip Sync event for charity happened.
The cause was for Giant Steps Therapeutic Riding Center.
Located in a beautiful rural setting on a working horse ranch just north of San Francisco, Giant Steps offers life-changing experiences to people of all ages with a wide range of disabilities.
Their mission is to enrich and change the lives of children and adults with disabilities through the extraordinary benefits of therapeutic riding and related equine-assisted activities.
Each week, riders come from throughout the Bay Area to interact with their 1,000 pound "therapist" in a safe and secure environment and achieve goals that they never before dreamed possible. Our focus is not on their limitations, but what they can do, and the results are extraordinary.
Our riders range in age from four to ninety-four years old and come to us with a wide range of challenges. We serve riders with over fifty distinct disabilities each year, including:
ADD, Cerebral palsy, Multiple sclerosis, ADHD, Cystic fibrosis, Muscular dystrophy, Autism, Developmental delays, Scoliosis, Bipolar disorder, Down syndrome, Spinal cord injuries, Blindness, Encephalitis, Stroke, Brain injury, Epilepsy, Tourette's syndrome
Lessons are individually designed to suit each rider's particular need, ability and stamina and are consistent with predetermined goals that are established in conjunction with parents, caregivers, physicians and other therapists. Find out more about our current programs.
